David Ignatius, best-selling author and prize-winning columnist for the Washington Post, has been covering the Middle East and the CIA for more than twenty-five years. He lives in Washington, DC.
"In addition to being a solid page-turner, [Bloodmoney] offers intriguing characters, a complicated but skillfully explicated plot and a nuanced view of Pashtun tribal culture often at odds with the larger Punjabi population. And as with all of Ignatius' fiction, readers attuned to current events may wonder if he knows things most Americans don't." -- Booklist "Starred Review. [C]ontinues his series of top-notch CIA thrillers with this fast-paced new entry.... Ignatius writes with authority and skill about a shadow world in which nothing is as it seems and money is power. This may be fiction, but in the end the reader will be struck by how feasible the story really is.... A terrific, believable novel about the intersection of politics, ethics and finance." -- Kirkus Reviews
